      Then we can all admit that we're going to have to have a showdown over the debt limit, which is where this is all really going to be decided.

      I want Obama to announce that he's unwilling to sign anything other than a clean debt limit bill. If the House can't come up with one---if they're actually willing to let the nation default---he'll go 14th amendment on their asses.

      The GOP has got to own their craziness. We've been coddling these nihilist fuckers for too long. I want them crushed in 2014.
